We baked up a batch of smart cookies for issue 24: interviews with a new generation of clever young things doing what they love in film, art, music, fashion, writing, social work and the environment.

Inside issue 24 you’d have found a sneaky peek through the houses of three creative types, a lady from Brisbane called Jane Austen and other ordinary folk with extraordinary names, things you didn’t know you could recycle and pincushions to sew.

We looked back at the fashion of yesteryear with a story on ladies and their vintage wardrobes, Beth Ditto talked to us about modern etiquette and tales of love and marriage came from couples who’d said ‘I do’.

Things we learnt in issue 20: how to win a bar fight, write a love song, dress The Brunettes, make a boy cry, go carbon-neutral, detect an indie sleaze, spin an art show out of a polaroid camera, cook like your mum and inspire Clare Bowditch.
